I was a new university student who was desperate to maintain a full time status in order to maintain a scholarship, so I enrolled in International Relations (IR) at the advice of my Academic Advisor. I was lost the very first day. Finally, my TA suggested I find a tutor.
Right from the start, I was impressed with Lisa Pfau’s professionalism and knowledge. Lisa helped me understand International Relations in a way that the Professor could not explain – with a sense of humor! She was able to explain International Relations at a level that sparked my interests as a Canadian Army Reservist. I became passionate about territorial disputes over Canada’s North, and with Lisa’s help, wrote a policy brief on the topic. At the end of the term, my TA took me aside to tell me how much she enjoyed reading my paper, and that out of 200 students she considered me the MOST IMPROVED! I was almost in tears! I was very happy with overall course grade and I owe it all to Lisa!
Hiring Lisa Pfau was the best decision and investment I have ever made. She really cared about my well-being and always maintained continuous contact and provided helpful recommendations. I was once scared of political science; however, after Lisa’s lessons I’m looking forward to enrolling in another Political Science course next year.
